Another thing to brag about: you can[1] upgrade from _any_ previous Debian
release directly to 2.2, "which hasn't been seen on any OS before".

Well, up to (or better down to) 1.3.1->2.2 has been tested successfully, and I
don't think anyone is still running <1.3.1 ;-)  (But if the kernel has ELF
support, it should still work.)

[1] Ok, not supported. But we don't have _any_ support contracts, do we?
